Travis Scott had such a fun time at Harvard this past weekend that he wants to come back as a student.

Before the rapper took the stage for his Astroworld tour concert at TD Garden Sunday night, he stopped by the Harvard Science Center for “A Master Class on Creativity,” where he and Sickamore, Interscope Records senior vice president of A&R and creative director, discussed Scott’s career and creative process, reports.

“I’m so excited to be here,” Scott said in a video taken at the event. “I actually want to go to school here one day.”

Scott reaffirmed his desire to attend Harvard in a tweet Monday afternoon, saying he was applying “in a couple days.”


After his show at TD Garden, Scott headed to Seaport nightclub The Grand and met up with a group of Celtics players including Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart, who were celebrating a birthday. Scott briefly headed into the club’s DJ booth, performing his hits “Sicko Mode” and “Goosebumps” for a sold-out crowd, before rejoining the Celtics at their table.

The next day Billboard announced that Scott owned the No. 1 single on the Hot 100 singles chart with “Sicko Mode.” That was in addition to “Astroworld” nabbing the top album on the Billboard 200 albums chart on Sunday.

“#1 album and #1 single,” Scott tweeted on Monday. “God is good.”
